Blk Girls Green House is a plant and specialty home goods shop, a community space, and what we like to call an absolute vibe. The brainchild of friends Kalkidan Gebreyohannes and J’Maica Roxanne, BGGH is committed to collaborating with fellow Black-owned businesses and creators and inspiring conscious, local shopping and gathering.
The idea for the business grew from Kalu and J'Maica's shared love of interiors, plants, and bringing joy to their living spaces and their community as a whole. The flagship location, situated in West Oakland stands as a reflection of Black joy & culture, which can be seen, felt and heard from the moment you walk through the doors.
It can be seen in the vintage photos of their mothers and grandmothers. It can be felt in the artwork that adorns the walls. It can be heard through their always-on-point playlist. It can be tasted in the artisanal coffee, tea, & pastries offered by Blythe Coffee, owned by Natalia Carrera, that anchors the shop.
Since opening their doors in August 2020, Blk Girls Green House has been featured in Forbes, Essence, Domino, and Vogue Business to name a few, and also launched their inaugural concert series “Grooves from the Green House”, which was headlined by Masego.
BGGH has also expanded beyond the brick-and-mortar operation, and now offer plant design, installation and maintenance services which include both retail and corporate clientele.
Whenever you’re in Oakland, we hope that you join us and find something you love, whether it’s a plant, a gift, a cup of coffee with a friend, or to just catch a vibe.
-It’s a beautiful time to GROW.
Kalu & J’Maica
